A beautiful sunny November morning on Kilchoman beach in Machir Bay on the west coast of Islay. After a full moon night a large number of Barnacle Geese had been roosting on the beach, here they can be seen lifting off after having been spooked.
It took quite a few attempts to get this one, a meteor from the Leonids meteor shower over Machir Bay on the west coast of Islay. It was a really bright flash shooting across the sky, only lasting less than a second, yet very impressive. You can also make out the Milky Way stretching from the top left to the bottom right of the view. The view is north along Kilchoman beach, the flat bright spot on the flat hill section is Coull Farm. To the right Cnoc Mòr (82m).
